 Shroud of Turin Centers & Organizations

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Joseph Marino who compiled and updated many of the resources originally included on this page. Joseph is a noted Shroud historian and archivist actively dedicated to Shroud research. Sadly, over the years since we first built this page, many of the organizations listed have ended their work, often due to the passing of their founders. We have noted those centers with a ** next to their names, but are keeping them on the list for historical purposes. Since many international centers are included on this page, you may view the list by selecting a country from the Country Navigator Bar or by scrolling through the page conventionally. Use your browser's "back" button to return to the navigator bar.

[Editor's Note: I have done my best to update this page accurately, but some information was just not available to me, particularly for those organizations located outside the U.S.. If you find any errors or can provide any updated information for any of the organizations listed here, please let me know by e-mail and I will get their listings updated promptly. I can use all the help I can get! Thank you!] (Updated January 21, 2023)

The museum displayed prominent discoveries relating to Old Testament and New Testament events and places, such as Noah's Ark, Gomorrah, Mt.

Since their website is no longer available, I must also assume the exhibit is no longer on display.

Dedicated to promoting the devotion and scientific research of the cloth, the Guild made available a large selection of Shroud books, photographs and other materials. In the last years of his life, Fr. Otterbein worked with Giorgio Bracaglia to inventory and manage the Guild's materials. After Fr. Otterbein's death on June 9, 1998, Giorgio continued the work and has been digitally archiving the important materials in the collections and making them available on the internet via his website: The Holy Shroud Guild.

The exhibit also boasts some artifacts from the 1978 scientific examination of the Shroud by the Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) team. The exhibit traces the known history of the Shroud and explores the many scientific investigations of the ancient cloth. Additionally, visitors will learn about the sufferings of the “man of the Shroud” and how those correspond to the Gospel accounts of the wounds inflicted on Jesus of Nazareth. As befits its setting in a funeral museum, the exhibit illustrates how the Shroud of Turin is consistent with known First Century Jewish burial practices.

It is only a few blocks away and a perfect compliment to a visit to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, where the Shroud is permanently stored. The Museum contains many historical Shroud related artifacts, including the silver casket that served as the Shroud's reliquary for hundreds of years. It also includes some of the historic, early photographs of the Shroud, including the original photographs made by Secondo Pia in 1898 and Giuseppe Enrie in 1931. The Museum houses the largest Shroud collection in the world, including Pia's camera, countless Shroud related historical artworks and much more.
